Out of all of those, the only ones I would really be interested in watching full sets from out of more than mild curiosity would be Radiohead and Neil Young, so 2/20. Even at Coachella, which is more geared towards my tastes, there's only a minority of headliners that I really want to see. Headliners usually aren't what get me to festivals, so I really appreciate having options. If Coachella pulled the same thing with unopposed headliners, I certainly would enjoy it far less. I'd rather have too many options than too few, like I felt I did on Saturday and Sunday of Bonnaroo this year. Maybe this means me and Bonnaroo are a poor fit, but I really enjoyed my time there this year and the sets I did see, which is why I'm complaining so much about the set times. It's fucking frustrating to see something with such great potential get pissed away with decisions that don't seem to make much sense. Instead of having a full, great weekend of music like I did at Coachella, I had one full great day and two mediocre days. And considering how much money I put into going, and how many other festival options are out there, it makes committing to another Bonnaroo less likely. I appreciate everything that Bonnaroo does right, but as a paying customer, it's not unreasonable for me or others to point out problems that we see that can be resolved. It could rain all fucking weekend for all I care if I'm getting one of the best music experiences of my life.
There's absolutely no reason why you had "two mediocre days" at Bonnaroo, Patrick. No reason at all, that's all your doing right there

a little different slant on scheduling conflicts and the like: i didnt go to the roo this year, but i did spend 3 days watching it on the blue room .... there was almost no band that i would have actually seen being broadcast, but who knows, that might have been the perfect schedule for them .... i pick a couple of bands a day to for sure see, and beyond thats, its free form music ... why be tied down cr******
